We’re right behind DGH

AS YOU will be aware, it appears we may have a battle on our hands over the coming months against a possible downgrading of maternity and cardiology at the District General Hospital.

I am utterly confident the town will be united in its determination to retain core services at our local hospital.

On a personal note, over the last week or two I have been a patient at the hospital – minor surgery and the like – and my experience has reminded me of why we love our hospital.

All of the staff, clinical and otherwise, were kind, good humoured and professional. Thank you DGH. Eastbourne is four square behind you.
